I read in an article that babies that use pacifiers when going to bed are less likely to be affected by SIDS. Do you think that would be a true statement??
Im just curious ive been reading lots of things this one just stuck out i never liked pacifiers but DD does.
From the baby center:
Offer your baby a pacifier when you put him down to sleep.
Studies show a lower incidence of SIDS among infants who use pacifiers, although experts don't know whether there's a direct cause and effect. Because of the correlation, the AAP suggests that you give your baby a pacifier when putting him down for naps and at bedtime for the first year of life.
You don't have to reinsert the pacifier if your baby drops it once he falls asleep. And there's no need to force your baby to use one if he doesn't take to it. The AAP also cautions that if you're nursing, it's best to wait to offer a pacifier until breastfeeding is well established
Yes, I do. Babies using a paci will suck every once in a while, in their sleep. Thus they are breathing in their sleep. Both of my kids have used one from birth.
While I think that is true, my LO would never take a paci. Ever
I did it with my both of mine, anything they recommended to reduce it true or not at least offered somewhat peace of mind. But then again I was paranoid for the longest time worrying about it. We did the fan, the oacifier, sleeping on back. We did it all.
I think so because when LO was learning to roll over and press himself against stuff the paci would make it so that his nose was not squished up like it would be if he didn't have his paci. That is my theory on why it works.
I think it's true. I wish my kids would have taken one, but they wouldn't :(.
I can see why that'd be true. I try giving my LO one, but she just spits it out as soon as she falls asleep :(
I think its true, it makes them not go in a deep sleep, to where they "forget" to breath.
The part that controls the breathing also controls the sucking motion---Thats my theory.

DD will move her arm to find her nuk and put it back into her mouth in her sleep. I LOVE her sleep-addiction to her nuk (for now) because of that exact reason- she will wake up and cry if she cant find it in the dark. I love to hear that cry, because crying while can get frustrating to a tired mommy, always means life. I am willing to try anything and everything within reason to reduce the risk of sids. DD has slept with her nuk since birth and shes 11.5months now. I can hear her suckle when I walk by at night. That in itself is beautifully reassuring.
